oh ok, cause i see police cars leaving the hood open when they have there engines idling with the top lights on for a while. Ive herd that its better to leave the hood closed so it can keep the proper air flow.

the towel makes the cable drop to the ground when the cable breaks.. the hood ain't gonna stop a snapped cable.
